Arming for Apocalypse

St Edmunds Forgeworld is in full scale production for the forthcoming Apocalypse...

Just check out our growing force of Warhound Titans. Here are three of the five completed so far, with a Forgeworld Chaos Warhound rumoured to be lurching onto the battlefield sometime soon.

If you have been out of the GW gaming scene for a little while (with piles of models 'resting' in your loft) what better time to return to the fray than in some mega-battles at the club? Apocalypse coming to the club this Autumn!

Apocalypse warm-up

The release of the Apocalypse expansion looks to be the next big thing (literally!) to take hold of us gamers. Thought I would post up a memory from our own little apocalypse earlier this summer...photo is of some of our juniors preparing for the Imperium vs. Xenos all-in tank battle. The Imperium came in force with about 27 vehicles, whilst the Xenos went for quality (!) over quantity with about 18 vehicles. By the end of the frantic evening the place was littered with wrecks (no not the veteran gamers) with the last Eldar falcons pinned down by an advancing column of Imperial tanks. The Imperium had taken more losses, but still outnumbered the Xenos, so claimed the victory. Now, that's what being in a wargames club is all about!

Enough chatter, just show me the games!

We play tabletop war games like Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Infinity, Malifaux, Warmachine, Hordes, Flames of War, Warmaster and Lord of the Rings. We also play card games such as Yugiho and Warcraft.
Board games also see action on our tables, games such as Super Dungeon Explorer, Spartacus, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Mansion of Madness and Pandemic all make an appearance.
We are quite relaxed in our painting rules, models must be undercoated, however it would be nice to see a bi-weekly improvement. Please be sensible and don’t bring things in like two lascannon’s stuck to a bottle to represent a landraider (it has been done). We are happy to see weird and wacky conversions and try experimental rules.

What time shall I come?

We meet mostly every other Saturday unless the venue is not available (check out our fancy calendar and the Forum for updates)

From 3pm to 10pm is gaming time, gamers under 16 (must be accompanied by adult, parent or guardian). Although most of us come as early as we can because we just love gaming!

The club runs on a “Play & Pay” basis where £3 goes towards the cost of the hall, which the Bury 1st Scouts have allowed us to use. Any extra goes into the making of scenery and boards etc. Your first two gaming sessions are free, so don't be shy give us a road-test...

Where to find us

We meet in the Bury 1st Scout Hut, which is a lot more substantial than it sounds! Its on the right of the Greengage pub on Tollgate Lane. Parking is available on the street (not in the pub car park sorry!)

Gaming Club facilities

 Usually we have five main boards set up all with scenery provided. Plus tables available to play your boardgames on. We also have tea and coffee facilities, toilets.
